We're Back!

We're back! And now I need a vacation! Unfortunately the ocean breeze did nothing for my allergies and I came back feeling worse than when I left, but thanks to liquid Aleve I was able to soak up all of the fun! We hit the zoo, Coronado Island, Torrey Pines, and of course the most important, two scrapbook stores! Woo hoo. I think I'll make a quick video about my experience at those stores. I did want to share this card I made awhile back. I actually really like it, so I'm not sure why I haven't shared it. I think it's my love of all things neutral.



Here are a couple of my favorite pictures from the trip:




I'm off to watch some football. Tennessee has an off week, so I'll have to cheer for my hubby's team tonight! Also, I can't wait to catch up on what all you've been up to this past week!
